Wizz Air has reopened its Belgrade base on 1 June 2020 with routes to some of the most popular destinations in Europe: Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden, Hanover, Memmingen/Munich West, Dortmund (Germany), Malmo, Stockholm Skavsta, Gothenburg Landvetter (Sweden), Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg (Switzerland), Eindhoven (Nederlands), and London Luton (UK).

To help passengers and crew travel safely and worry-free, Wizz Air has implemented additional hygiene measures to support physical distancing during boarding and enhanced cleanliness on board. As part of the measures to protect the health of customers and crew, customers should check-in and make any purchases online, such as paying for additional bags, to reduce non-essential interaction at the airport. In an attempt to contain the spread of possible infection, passengers are kindly asked to adhere to the new physical distancing rules both during boarding and disembarkation.

George Michalopoulos, Chief Commercial Officer at Wizz Air, said: We are pleased to resume flights from Belgrade to provide an essential service to passengers who need to travel. The health and wellbeing of passengers and crew have always been Wizz Air’s number one priority. In order to ensure the most sanitary conditions possible, we have implemented additional hygiene measures to support physical distancing during boarding and enhanced cleanliness on board. We encourage passengers to watch our an explanatory video on how to stay safe when travelling, as well as for more details on our new health and safety measures.

While the HEPA filters of all Wizz Air aircraft filter out 99.97% of viruses and bacteria from the air within the cabin, the crew as well as passengers are required to wear masks throughout the flight. Cabin crew distribute sanitizing wipes to each passenger, while the removal of onboard magazines and the encouragement of contactless payment during onboard purchases are measures introduced to minimize physical contact. On flights where load factor allows, the crew observes seat distancing for passengers.
